Cybersecurity Challenges and Pathways in the Context of Connected Vehicle Systems

 Average 0 out of 5

An overview and comparison of the inherent security flaws in automotive radar and Dedicated Short-Range Communication (DSRC) technologies. Continue to the bottom of the page for the Resource Link.

Description:
As vehicles become more automated, security issues in automotive systems such as radar and dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) must be thoroughly examined.

Existing implementations of automotive radar are vulnerable to a spoofing attack from a third party, potentially resulting in fatal accidents. While DSRC exhibits inherent resilience to spoofing attacks, it is still susceptible to similar types of attacks used against traditional Wi-Fi.

This report concludes with a summary on the motivation for combining radar and DSRC into a joint communication system and an overview of the potential consequences of an insecure vehicular system.
